One of my good friends from high school just sent me a message on FB asking for my address so she could send me a STD soon. She’s getting married in 2012, I’m getting married this summer. It seems like she is having a pretty big wedding, while DFi and I are inviting about 130 people and paying for it ourselves. We were pretty good friends in high school (8 years ago), but didn’t stay close throughout college and I’ve really only talked to her a couple of times since she moved away. I wasn’t planning on inviting her to my wedding… but considering I know I’m going to be invited to hers, should I reconsider?

I don’t think you need to invite her. If she asks or hints at it, just explain that it’s a smaller wedding and are only inviting close friends and family. She should understand!

I don’t think it’s required, but I voted other.
I had a similar thing happen. I reconnected with someone I’d known peripherally in college.
We both got engaged around the same time and ended up living in the same city so we’d have dinner once every few months to talk weddings.
She asked for my address and invited me to her engagement party (her wedding isn’t until 2012).
After that I decided to add her and her FI to the guest list even though our wedding is much smaller (120 vs 300+) and a destination (whereas hers is local) because he had room on the guest list and I was starting to feel like it would be nice to have her there.
If this person is someone you think you’d like to have at the wedding, then by all means reconsider. If you already had to cut corners on the guest list and cut out people you want there more than her, then by no means are you required to invite her.

I don’t think that there is any need to invite her. There are just some space and size restrictions that alot of us must adhere to. I think that she will understand as she will be faced with that herself soon.
